Ghostriders of the Dark Worlds......

They only come around in the darkness
moonshadows is all you'll see
If ever you go about looking for them
you may become as me

When they took me into thier circle I asked
why isn't there any light ?
With all the power of constellations there is
only perpetual darkness of night

And in reply what did they say ?" Moonlights
only a reflection as are the stars and planets too
We can only come out at night , and now it's
the same life for you !"

Now our destinies are cast ....there is no
way to return home again
As we saddle up our winged paliminos
we'll ride together to the end

If you're ever out at night ......and see a winged rider
where there is never any sound
Look for me ......the one who doen't fit in
I won't come back around

And beware of this ghost ahorseback
I ride there now by choice
As I watch the dark world below me and listen for
your nightime voice

Calling forever to see ahorseback materialize into the light. Alas, he has been claimed by the power of the night. I am so glad this is only a poem. How treacherous is it that we long so badly that it becomes our desire and we remain by choice in the bitter beauty.

I agree with Hyphenbird, glad it's only a poem.

Boo, Scary!! I bet you heard the song, 'Ghostriders in the sky'? Funny how a poet can be inspired by a song, a house, war, you name it. Thank you. Enjoyed much.

Cheers

This is a good time to tell Hyphen that i bought the brand of wine she suggested, and i enjoy one or two glasses of yellow tail every evening. I find it's relaxing and enjoyable. Thank you.

I wish i liked beer, i see people drink it and really enjoy the taste, but it just makes me feel bloaty ( Is that a word? ) LOL I did some research on red wine and found that it's healthy and aids digestion, but the best is it makes you feel more outgoing and you sleep like a baby. I know it's ok cos Jesus said to drink wine for your stomach's sake. Hee

Cheers

I came to comment and saw that always just did. So cool.

I really like beer. A friend's husband knows beer like many people know wine. He is a real connoisseur. horseback, I would drink one for you but do not have any however the wine is here, the baby is asleep and I am in my nightie so I cannot go buy any. So I toast you with a glass of nice red.

So what do you blab about? Spill it, we want to hear it all!

Oh just crazy busy, I want to get another portion to a book I "hope" to sell added in for what I thought was lacking and I have like 2000 photos I don't want stolen so I have been wanting to learn to watermark them and while copying pictures into files I hit a button asking if I wanted to do that so I have that software and didn't even know it!, so now I have to figure it out but 101 other things needing done too and tomorrow my husband is going to show me how to put a site up and I am just so thrilled! .....Never ask a woman how they are...because most will tell you...lol. Hope all is well with you.

Polly , "never ask a woman how she feels " ha ha , thats a good one , to tell you the truth I am a very laid back kind of guy , and I look at my wife and many other women and think "god you make me feel tired just watching you!" Its not okay to run run run all the time. You know!...:-}
